Cov19 fitting

We will do everything we can to keep everyone safe and still get your fit perfect

COVID-19 New Bike Fitting

We have started conducting New Bike Cyclefit sessions in-store. Everyone's safety has to be a priority - each session is choreographed and structured to achieve the best bikefit result with the minimum risk. We have split the appointment in to two 45 minute sessions - Online and In-Studio:

Online Interview (45 minutes)

  • Training / riding history
  • Injury / pain history / concerns
  • Riding goals and aspirations
  • Discussion of new bike project

In-Store Cyclefit (45 minutes)

  • Socially distanced Functional Movement Screen (FMS) - standing evaluation, inseam measurement, single-leg squats and hamstring flexibility.
  • Pedalling on our infinitely adjustable Fit Bike - key data points recorded and XY co-ordinates to determine frame size and bike set-up.
  • Post fit discussion and ecommendation of bike models, frame sizing/geometry/custom-design

Cyclefit COVID-19 measures

  • Studios are cleaned with anti-viral cleaner before and after every session
  • We have arranged Studio 1 and 2 so the technician and client are separated during the appointment (in separate studios).
  • Client and Cyclefit Technician will wear surgical masks throughout the session
  • Social Distancing of 2m is maintained throughout
  • The session will be kept as brief as possible to reduce any risks

£200.00 1.5 - 2 hours

What's involved?

  • Interview - conducted online - pre-appointment

    We aim to understand as much as possible about you, your life and your cycling. Knowing your future aspirations and current cycling limitations will help us determine your bike position based on your fitness, aspirations and the type of cycling you do. We will spend time exploring any past or current injury or discomfort history both on and off the bike. This helps us to understand what we may find during the physical evaluation or during the on-bike analysis.

  • Physical evaluation

    Weight, inseam length, foot size, hamstring/sacrum range, single leg squats.

  • Four-camera Dartfish Motion Analysis

    Dartfish's sophisticated software records a rider's every movement and can measure leg extension and track key points of movement. Your position and movement is recorded throughout the session to illustrate changes. A very important aspect for the customer is the ability to view their posture and pedalling technique.

  • Fully adjustable Fit Bike for dynamic fitting

    The Fit Bike allows us to adjust a rider's position without compromising to a frame's limitations; millimetre accurate adjustments can be made while the rider is pedalling. No on-and-off and stop start. Smooth, fast, accurate, repeatable and recordable adjustments. Handlebar and saddle can be changed to achieve the best set-up. The crank length can also be adjusted easily during the session.

  • Computrainer Pedal stroke analysis

    Wired into the Fit Bike is RacerMate's Computrainer. The Computrainer provides the variable resistance and most importantly the Spinscan. The Spinscan shows you and your fitter when and where the power is applied during the pedal stroke and any pedalling asymmetries that may be present.

  • Cleat set-up

    The pedal cleats will be set in the correct position and adjustments made to ensure optimum performance.

  • GebioMized saddle pressure mapping

    Pressure Mapping provides objective feedback, enabling us to make small, precise adjustments and interventions to optimise your connection with the bike and making it an all-round more enjoyable ride

  • Full Report and Recommendations

    After your Cyclefit you will receive a full report containing the recommended set-up for your bicycle and recommendations for a new bicycle.

What our clients say

  • "Thanks very much Phil. Did an 80 mile sportive yesterday on the road bike - perfect set up thanks; I've never been so comfortable, and no after effects! Cheers, Ian "

    Ian T.

    Time-Triallist (70+)

  • "Rode my standard Box Hill loop this morning with the temp shims and more thought to position. Felt more connected and compact on the bike. Fastest ride of the year, picked up close to a km/per hour despite crappy wet pot holed roads, a ton of traffic and a couple of nights out Thu/Fri."

    Matt H

    Seven Evergreen SL

  • "A highly personalized and very friendly service, giving good advice and adjustments that are helpful whatever level of cyclist you are."

    MJ

    Cyclist

  • "The personal service from both Phil and Julian is second to none. They have such a wealth of experience in fitting that they can almost tell at a glance if something is just a little off. It felt as though it didn't matter how long it took to get the best position possible - even for an amateur cyclist like myself. Can't recommend them enough."
